Cape May house description
Cape May is one of only three cities in the USA in which the whole city is designated an Historic Landmark City. The historic district is composed of hundreds of beautifully painted and maintained Victorian homes. Decatur Street is the heart of this district and 132 Decatur is a classic example of 'Queen Anne' Victorian architecture. Trolley, horse-drawn carriage, and walking tours travel the streets with guides telling stories about the history of 'the United States first Seashore Resort', the five presidents that made this their summer white house, and the unique architecture like 132 Decatur's 'belly porch.' The porch is one of the areas that everyone loves. It is large and relaxing and an ideal place to people watch, have cocktails, watch the horse-drawn carriages, and dine.
132 Decatur Street has an ideal location. It is one block from a beautiful wide beach yet only one half block from the center of the pedestrian shopping mall. Everything is within an easy walk. Excellent restaurants, bars with live entertainment, interesting boutiques, two live theaters, miniature golf, and arcades for the kids are no more than four blocks away. Challenging golf courses and excellent deep sea fishing are close by.
The house is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is newly renovated with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. It is fully equipped with all the utensils a gourmet cook might need. An HDTV is wall-mounted in the kitchen. It has counter space for seven diners as well as a separate bar and coffee bar area with beverage refrigerator, blenders and multiple coffee makers. A powder room and fully equipped laundry are adjacent to the kitchen. The house has a dining room that will accommodate twelve and two living rooms. Each living room has a flat screen HDTV and DVD. The living rooms are separated by pocket doors to allow for different tastes in TV or movie watching.
The second floor has four bedrooms and two full, modern bathrooms (beds are 2 Queens, 1 Full, and 1 Twin). The third floor has two bedrooms (beds are 2 Full and 2 Twin) and a turret used as a reading area. The rear yard is fenced with a six foot fence for privacy and safety of young children. It has an outside shower / changing area and parking for two cars. Everyone that stays at 132 Decatur loves the house and its convenience.

Best beach house in Cape May!
Best beach house in Cape May!
We love this house. It is the best location in Cape May because you can walk one (long) block to the beach and it is literally in the center of town, overlooking a beautiful garden and gazebo. It was immaculately clean and has a large front porch where we spent most of our time. The rooms are updated and comfortable and the kitchen is renovated with a nice bar area. There are adjoining family room and living room, both with flat screen TVs so both my kids and parents were happy. Short easy walk to all restaurants, including Congress Hall. We ate outside at the Blue Pig...great for kids. We already booked a week for next year.

We have just returned from our third stay and the family is already talking about when we can go back! The house is a beautifully maintained Victorian with a modern kitchen that I would love to have in my own home. There is plenty of room for everyone in a large family, which ours is, to find privacy when wanted. The bedrooms are comfortable and roomy. You couldn't ask for a better location ...a block from the beach and a few steps from the center of town. And the porch is a wonderful people-watching spot! There is a golf course nearby and many things to see and do in town. The restaurants are very good and many are child friendly. The owners are trustworthy and very easy to deal with. We love family friendly Cape May and would never consider renting a different house. We will go back, and would recommend this property to anyone.

We rented this house for a week in August 2010. My parents, grandfather, sister and brother-in-law, my wife and two children - nine of us! Although it rained for the majority of the week, we had an incredible time because of this home. The house is well kept, spacious, and a grand old victorian home. In addition to all of the great attributes of the home, the best is the location. If you are going to rent in Cape May, you could not possibly have a better location than where this house is located; two blocks from the beach, and in the middle of the shops and restaurants. We had an amazing time, and would highly recommend renting this home. If we go back to Cape May, we will definitely be renting this home.

Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
Cape May is a quaint and unique town unlike any of the other seashore towns in New Jersey. It is a real town with interesting year round residents. Unlike the other New Jersey seashore towns that pretty much close down after the summer season, Cape May has a vibrant life all year.
